We are Here! We are Here!


I feel like the Who's in Horton Hears a Who calling out to you all that we are here, lol... Can you hear me calling as I walk past the computer... I haven't written in the journal since over a week ago, how did that happen... I'm on the computer enough but still not enough time... Working 9-5 opens up time for some things but blocks out time for playing on computer... well of course then there is stupid facebook, lol... I love My Farm, Eco Racer and lots of other little applications that are fun to play...

So what have we been doing, I don't remember that far back, lol... It has been raining a lot! But today is Sunny and 66 with no rain til maybe tonight or Saturday...

We finally saw Wall-E, very cute...

At work we are getting ready for yet another visit for next Friday... we have a ton of hours this week... Working 9-5 isn't too bad, I have time in the morning to check email, throw in some laundry, load the dishwasher, get the boys to school and this or that... but then in the evening it's finish homework, dinner, watch a show to relax and fall asleep... Sunday I still go in at 6am to set the ad and Monday's I go in 7am but only if we have hours, like this past Monday...

Hubby worked his first 6-2pm yesterday but now today he is back to 10-7 for a training class, then the next two days 6am, so we will see how he is by Saturday... of course they have talked now of changing the store hours so he may go to 7-3pm, which doesn't work as well for school pick up....

Son3 has been doing better on spelling, his reading has improved, but he still brings home too much classwork.... I wonder if it is him or the teacher trying to do many things and they run out of time.... Hubby had a bit of a chat with her the other day but he may still have a conference with the counselor...

Son2 is doing fine... He seems to have grown into his 15 years lately... Gets up for school on his own... texts with his friend that is a girl every day giving her advise on her boyfriend that is also son2's friend, all the while finally admitting to us that he likes her too.... He is on book 3 of the Twilight series, I am on book 2... I still don't see what all the excitement is about so we debate over the books every so often...

Son1 called a week ago asking if he could move back home.... said girlfriend was cheating and he was going to confront her.... He was coming over on Sunday to talk... Son2 text him if he was coming over, he never said yes or no all day Sunday... he finally text son2 that he didn't want to be a burden by moving home... Son2 text him back that he was not a burden and to come home and pay off his bills and start fresh... Son1 has not responded... So we are waiting for the other shoe to fall....

All the trees in Fresno are blossoming pink and white... All the daffodils are blooming in the front yard and a couple of the bulbs I planted in the backyard are just pushing up through the ground... The rosebushes all have new leaves sprouting and the trees are also sprouting new leaves... The birds are busy at the bird feeders... Spring is here...

And other than that, you can see you haven't missed a thing, same things going on now that were going on a week ago, lol....

And as usual I have laundry, dishes and what's for dinner all waiting for me and the boys will be home from school soon and homework will begin...










Happy Journaling...

don't be surprised if son1 comes knocking on the door some time with all his stuff, LOL. I would move home if I was him to save some money; it is expensive living on your own (plus moms always buy the cool things to eat, LOL)

so glad you did an entry; was wondering if I would have to drive up to check on you (road trips could be fun)

sounds like you are all doing reasonably well :)

I don't know how old Son1 is, but my daughter is 22. She is back living at home after 3 years out of state (U of Iowa) while she is in grad school. The plan she has right now is to move into an apartment in August with 2 classmates. That's fine, she needs her freedom, but her room will always be ready for her to come back home! They're always our children and I she is always welcome here. Good luck!

Glad you are getting your spring. We are getting a small taste of nice weather. Hope it continues..lol

Good to know that things are their normal busy selves at your house. Never a dull moment for sure. I love it that you have Spring. It does give me a bit of hope...it will get here, just takes alot longer in our part of the world.

I wish son 1 the best in whatever he chooses. Hopefully if his gf is cheating he doesn't stay and put up with it. My son went back and the second time she cheated he called it quits. I was glad he learned the second round.

With the cost of living, don't be surprised if he's back with you soon.

Hi Linda. Glad to hear you are all doing well. I hope everything works out with son1 poor guy. That stinks about his girlfriend because I know he really cared about her. Better that he learned it about her now though than later. Sorry I have not been reading like I should. I miss ya and love ya!!!!

Janie said...

Glad you like the 9-5 schedule but yes hard to have time for journaling... I was gone a whole week too and so I am still playing catch up. Wow everyone is really over at facebook... LOL I'm slow.
